This disc presents some interesting works; unfortunately the performance is often messy, the words hard to distinguish, and the tone frequently unpleasant. Bearing in mind that the boys are the weakest link at Christ Church Cathedral, it's surprising that someone somewhere decided they should make a disc of their own. There are some truly dire moments - such as the scrappy ensemble of "This Little Babe" - and altogether the boys make such a scratchy, unblended sound that it's impossible to get much enjoyment here. At least they sound like they're having fun in the "Children's Crusade". A recording to buy out of curiosity for the unusual repertoire, rather than the beauty of the musical performance.
